About & Contact

A lifestyle journal about food, recipes, edible gardening, and photography.

Eat to live, not live to eat.


Thank you for visiting the About & Contact page and your interest in the Teenie Cakes journal. I’m a wife, gardener, corgi-parent, culinary enthusiast, and food photographer (among many things) and have carved out a little piece of the blogosphere to share just some of my loves through my writing and photography. The Teenie Cakes journal began themed about cupcakes and muffins in 2007.  I had notions that one day I’d open my own cupcakery and put that business degree to use with my enthusiasm for culinary fare.  “Teenie Cakes”  is a name my Husband called my mini baked treats (pulling from my name “Cristina” aka “Tina” = “Teenie”) and so it was how the name became used for this blog.   Since one can only eat so many cupcakes, the site has since evolved to include a myriad of other recipes with the following in mind:

  • Using a lot of fresh, seasonal produce both from my edible garden and markets – and using extra virgin olive oil when possible;
  • Discover and use healthier eating and food preparation alternatives;
  • Experimenting with ingredients, flavor combinations and techniques that are new to me;
  • Portion control presentation and servings for dishes and desserts when possible;
  • Portraying tasty, beautiful food through writing and food photography.

With a BSBA and over 10 years as a Web applications developer and designer for Fortune 500 companies this is my creative outlet bringing together my loves for both technical and creative projects. This site is a lifestyle journal about food, recipes, edible gardening and my love for photography. The journal is also a way for me to share recipes that I develop, experiment with, try and test from other reputable and published sources – plus some culinary adventures experienced in bakeries, restaurants, festivals, wine tastings, etc.

I want to draw you in by the title of the recipes and for you to eat with your eyes  when you discover what I’m sharing and presenting to you. I want to entice you to want to taste it, make it and enjoy sharing it with the people you care about too.
